What Motherhood Taught Me About Depending on God

What Motherhood Taught Me About Depending on God

“If Mama Ain’t Happy…”-How Your Mood Affects the Atmosphere of Your Home

The other day I was in a bad mood. I woke up grumpy and wanted everyone to know that I wasn’t happy. The whole day just went badly from there. The girls were whiney and picking at each other…every little thing tried my patience…and of course it was all my husband’s fault (because I had to…

4 Effective Ways to Not Become a Momster

If you thought you were a pretty decent, upstanding person before having kids, I’m sure you got your wake up call shortly after they were born.

My Two Week Journey of Practicing Self-Control

The day before Easter weekend I got a book from my Bible study leader that caused me to stop and think about my life and whether I was happy with where things were at. As I read, I realized that I wasn’t. First, I admitted to myself that I had a slight TV addiction (particularity…

The Easter Solution to Humanity’s Conflicts

The Easter Solution to Humanity’s Conflicts

This past Friday my husband and I attended a lovely citywide Good Friday service with our two toddlers in tow, and I found the message spoken so powerful that I thought I would share it.
